I am a Research Associate and Laboratory Manager in the Food System Integrity team. I specialize in Microbiology and Molecular Biology with my current focus on Anaerobic Microbiology, DNA extraction methods and RT-PCR assay development.
My passion for science saw me complete my BSc and MSc at the University of Otago. I have been at AgResearch for 16 years and have previously worked in the Infectious Diseases and Rumen Microbiology teams before joining my present team in 2017.
